Enjoy a unique afternoon tea with a delectable selection of handmade cakes and savouries, each inspired by a fruit, flower or herb grown in the conservatory.

Afternoon Tea is priced at £35 per person, including a glass of prosecco. Please book in advance.

Please note that the conservatory is open to the public as well as visitors coming for afternoon tea - it is not a private setting.
